Innovative Solutions

If you’re looking for cutting tool solutions that maintain tight tolerances while reducing downtime and maintenance, you’ve come to the right place. Anchoring the highest quality of products in the world, our Thrift brand line provides ISO 9001:2015 certified carbide tooling solutions for all your needs.

As a Peterson client, you’ll be working with a team of innovators who were first to introduce many revolutionary techniques to the screw machine industry. Peterson introduced carbide insert technology, was the first to utilize EDM technology, first to offer a datum-based tooling system, and the first to back up the unique performance and flexibility of carbide insert systems with machine fixtures specifically developed for the screw machine industry.
